How to Use Milk as a Moisturizer

Milk can be used to moisturize your whole body including your face. Know the ways to make right use of it:


1. Milk Face Wash

Take 2 tablespoons of fresh raw milk and rinse your face with it. Rub a little by using your fingertips in a very gentle manner. Finally, splash clean cold water on your face and wash it properly. It should be done regularly right before taking a bath or shower.

2. Milk Face Pack

Take 2 to 3 tablespoons of raw, full fat milk and massage your clean face with it gently by using your fingertips. You can also add a few other skin-friendly natural ingredients like honey, almond paste, etc. and prepare a mixed face pack. Let it t on your face for 15 to 20 minutes. Once it dries up, rinse off with fresh cold water.

3. Milk Face Mask

Take 2 to 3 tablespoons of raw fresh milk (full fat or even creamy is good to use) and small piece of a soft cotton cloth. Dip the cloth piece into the milk completely so that it can soak up enough milk and get wet. Then, place the wet cloth over your face and spread it evenly with your hands. It will allow your face to absorb milk from the cloth and make it soft, supple and beautiful easily. After 15 minutes or so, scrub the face slightly with that cloth and remove it from your face. At last, rinse the face off with fresh cold water.
